Domaine Jean-Luc Mader Pinot Gris Grand Cru Schlossberg Dry Gris 2014
“Opens very clear and fresh, with some oaky flavours and a nice fresh and fruity purity. Very elegant on the palate, with a lot of salt and lingering minerality, this is a remarkably fresh and finessed Pinot Gris with a stimulatingly salty finish. Really fine tannins here. Drink Date 2019 - 2031.” 91 points, Stephen Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate, June 2017 (a great score for this style).
This is an outstanding example of Alsatian Pinot Gris. Full, fruity and fresh but as dry as Alsatian Gris gets. Apricot and spice notes give intensity and energy. Good acid and earthy notes on the finish show purity and finesse. A nice viscosity that coats your mouth but no sweetness or oiliness here. Only around 60-70 cases are made, so make sure you grab a bottle. Or two.
